How to Win at Adulting with Arika Pierce + Ask Shannah

Haven’t we all been there on those days when life just doesn’t seem to make sense? There are ways to win at adulting, and our podcast guest, Arika Pierce, is dropping some bombs of wisdom on this podcast episode.

Think of her like me, your big sister sharing lessons she’s learned along the way. On this podcast episode, we’re chatting about some of her favorite playbook advice for your wallet and your career, and why she says that her best piece of advice is, “always be comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

Reinvent Your Wardrobe (& Save $$) with Brooklyn Decker and Whitney Casey + Ask Shannah

You look in your closet and can’t find a thing to wear. So, naturally, you jump online to start shopping. But, what if there was a better way? What if you could have your closet on your phone and shop your closet in a new way each day? Meet Finery.

Finery is the first digital wardrobe platform that organizes your wardrobe and uses predictive analytics to style you with the clothes you already own, founded by Brooklyn Decker (actress, model, currently on “‘Gracie and Frankie”) and Whitney Casey (former ABC and CNN anchor). Brooklyn and Whitney created Finery after realizing there was Spotify to manage our music, Tripit to manage our travel and Mint to manage our finances – why wasn’t there an app to manage our wardrobes, which women spend more on than their education?

On This Podcast Episode:

I’m talking raw and honest with Brooklyn and Whitney about what it took as female entrepreneurs to launch their new business venture, Finery. There are so many great pearls of wisdom in this podcast episode whether you just want to find a way to save money and shop your wardrobe or you want to some female to female advice on getting your business up and running.

We’re covering:

  • Why they decided to build an app that stops selling people more stuff and starts helping them use what they’ve got
  • How to find your “perfect” business partner
  • Why investors are finally excited about investing in female-owned startups
  • Debunking myths women have on how they spend, save and invest their money

Everyone Has a Story with Lily Clayton Hansen + Ask Shannah

We talk often on this podcast about our own stories – our money stories, our career stories, our family stories, etc. and how those stories have a direct correlation to the decisions we make in our lives. Our podcast guest, Lily Clayton Hansen, has built her career sharing stories of people who inspire her focused on her goal of reminding people, “that by keeping an open mind and heart we can foster genuine connection.” We need connections now more than ever.

On This Podcast Episode:

Lily was a guest on the podcast way back when her first book, Word of Mouth, hit the scene and she’s back again to chat about her new book, Word of Mouth: More Conversations, chronically stories from her hometown of Nashville.

In Word of Mouth: More Conversations—the follow-up to Hansen’s first coffee table book, Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations, which sparked collaborations with institutions such as the Nashville International Airport and Vanderbilt University—the author interviews a wide cast of characters from business owners to community leaders and artists. Her intention is to show the textured, complex creative mecca that is Nashville.

My hope through this conversation is that you’ll be inspired to have more conversations – conversations with your partner about money, conversations with your family, conversations with people you come in contact with about their life and find common connections. Also, I hope Lily’s story shows you that a dream career is possible without a huge NY Times best-seller or millions of books sold. She’s a millennial on a mission and her fearlessness is downright infectious.

Why Being Bad With Money Isn’t So Bad With Gaby Dunn + Ask Shannah

You may know of the name Gaby Dunn. She’s host of a popular podcast, Bad With Money, and is also a New York Times best-selling author, journalist, Comedian and YouTuber. Basically, she’s never bored! Gaby realized one day that if she was bad with money, other people must be too, and so she decided to start a conversation around it.

On This Podcast Episode:

“Money scripts, how you think about money based on what your family taught you is a new concept to me. Everybody learned about money by who they were raised by and it’s hard to undo that,” proclaims Gaby on this podcast episode.

This was one of my favorite podcast conversations. Gaby is funny, engaging, and deeply committed to understanding why people are bad with their money. Her podcast hosts intelligent guests and she’s not afraid to be raw and real about her own money journey. We’re covering:

  • How money scripts play into your financial thoughts
  • Why she thinks the lack of financial literacy is a conspiracy
  • How her own money story has shaped her finances
  • Why she feels talking about money is so important…even if it’s a taboo topic

Bringing Your Big Business Dream to Life with Jessica Nazarali + Ask Shannah

Turning Purpose Into Profit With Melyssa Griffin + Ask Shannah

We’ve all heard of those people who launch online businesses and make a million dollars, and yet it all still seems a bit unbelievable. Almost on accident, Melyssa Griffin transformed her once website design job into a multi-million dollar online business teaching others how to transform their own business…but at the end of the day, she felt a bit purposeless. Something I think we all can relate to, no matter our career.

On This Podcast Episode:

If you’re thinking this whole making money online thing is not realistic, then you need to meet Melyssa. She’s not only incredibly successful at her own business, but she spends her day helping others find their own Pursuit With Purpose (that’s even the name of her podcast). However, the money lessons that Melyssa has learned along the way might shock you (and you need to hear no matter what your career is).

Ask Shannah – How can I get my partner (soon to be spouse) on the same money page with me?

How You Earn, Save, And Spend Your Money – Alanna Okun

What does how you earn, save and spend your money say about your overall relationship with money – a lot actually.

Some of us spend more money to “look the part” in our careers and some of us can get away with comfy pants and ripped sweatshirts (although I urge you to never go to work this way). What writer Alanna Okun has found in her series, How Do You Shop on Racked is that our uniqueness to spending and saving money is also the tie that binds us all together.

On This Podcast Episode:

We’re getting down and dirty with Racked’s writer and editor, Alanna Okun, about the series How Do You Shop in this episode. Alanna shares some of the most surprising discoveries she’s learned from talking to many different women from across the U.S. about their own saving and spending money stories.

Alanna’s also got quite a money story herself. Living in NYC and working for Racked and BuzzFeed prior, she’s sharing her own wisdom about being smart with her cash and her exciting career journey (hint, she’s launching her first book, The Curse Of The Boyfriend Sweater in March).

A New Revolution In Higher Education – Adam Braun, MissionU

Attending college in the United States comes at a price. It feels almost – dare I say – criminal to me.

We tell students that you have to go to college if you want to get a good job – so you go to college, take on a ton of student debt or work yourself crazy to pay for college – and then you graduate…and then there aren’t jobs that will pay a salary worthy of your student loan bill. It doesn’t feel right to me…but I don’t know what the solution is really.

On This Podcast Episode:

I want to introduce you to a new alternative to higher education, Adam Braun, who started MissionU to change our broken education system and offer a fresh approach to learning. Imagine going to school without the burden of student loans and having companies like Lyft, Spotify, and Warby Parker help develop the curriculum and have early access to hire graduates.

I’m dishing all things MissionU with Adam in this podcast episode and uncovering why he’s so motivated and inspired to take on an old broken education system
